Weapons and the Newbie

Click to share this post.

After being asked to review a video Bradbury made a shocking discovery. The young man was clearly untrained. He was using a wooden sword called a bokken. It is hard to seriously injure yourself with a bokken but it’s not impossible to do. All weapons can hurt you if used improperly so it’s best to find a a teacher who knows what they’re doing. Learning from the internet or action flicks can result in serious injury or even death.

Key Takeaways:

  • All weapons are dangerous to varying degrees, but all of them have the potential to actually kill people. Sure, sure, some of use weapon-like props for tricking and dancing, but even these can seriously injure someone under the right conditions.
  • Movies and tv also give a very, very false impression of how bad it is to get hit or cut with weapons. You cannot take as many hits as you see the hero or villain take and then run around with maybe a cut or bruise on the face.
  • With the advent of the internet, the problem is much bigger. You have untrained people putting out their own videos on YouTube. You have untrained folks wielding all sorts of weapons
